i should have found out what their time is yesterday in the various cities, whether they are two hours ahead or not. but i heard that they are not starting that fixing of their time till next year. it will be a lot of confusion i think with plane arrival and departures if they all adopt different times. with some countries keeping to gmt, and others to bst permanently. but if u live in the country all year, and dont go travelling all this wont affect you very much . u will only notice it getting dark earlier today, then after that it becomes normal. this morning you should notice it getting lighter earlier, but if it rains as it is today, you wont notice much difference really. most people will be asleep anyway and no matter what they wont notice any difference at all when they get up.
